The Moon is Full in Aquarius on August 22, 2021, at 8:02 AM EDT.
This is the second Full Moon in Aquarius this year (the first occurred last month on July 23, 2021). This lunation occurs late in the sign of Aquarius, right near the cusp of Pisces.
A Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Leo forms an opposition to the Moon in Aquarius. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time – a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 29 degrees and 37 minutes of Aquarius. As the second Full Moon in Aquarius this year and occurring at the tail-end of the sign, this is about final events that awaken our feelings and that might spur us into action.
The Leo Sun is proud and intensely individual–not content with simply being just one of the team. The Aquarius Moon, while individualistic as well, values independence and the team, community, and group spirit. The Full Moon illuminates this conflict.
When a Full Moon occurs, we can suddenly burst forth with proclamations and outpours that seem fresh and new, simply because they are not yet rationalized. In fact, a Full Moon illuminates feelings, attitudes, and circumstances that are already in existence.
This is a time of awakening to the need for others or to answer to humanitarian impulses. It’s the second prompt in 2021 to recognize these needs and feelings.
This lunation affects people born with personal planets and points at approximately 26 to 30 degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) and 0 to 4 degrees of the Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) most significantly.
